The Art of Stranski

Company: Lorenzo Etherington through Kickstarter
Available: August 2017
Price: Pledge-based

Who – or what – is Stranski? British comic-book illustrator Lorenzo Etherington aims to answer that question, in his book The Art of Stranski, currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. As Etherington himself describes it, “The book collects together several years of concept art and illustrations from my ‘lost’ 1940s adventure,¬†STRANSKI. The world of Stranski is far better seen than described.”

The Art of Stranski presents full-colour illustrations throughout 100 pages that captivate, puzzle, and draw the reader into an unknown world that is part fairytale, part dystopian nightmare. The hardcover artbook also features a 3D chapter and includes 3D glasses for complete viewing pleasure.

This book will appeal to anyone fond of the unusual, and will certainly invite conversation around the coffee table. The Art of Stranski Kickstarter campaign ends on Friday, May 4 at 4pm EDT.
